Christophe Bruno, Joy Garnett, John Blanchard, Ruth Catlow, Marc Garrett,=

Joseph Franklyn McElroy & Donna McElroy, Lewis Lacook, Micki Tschur...

Fascinum - Christophe Bruno: This piece lives on the Yahoo portal. It shows=
the pictures from the daily news that are most viewed on different nationa=
l Yahoo websites. Compiling subjects that fascinate different countries all=
over the world, juxtaposed in real time. Diplaying the pictures most viewe=
d [ranking from 1 to 10] on different national Yahoo portals.

The Bomb Project - Joy Garnett: A comprehensive on-line compendium of nucle=
ar-related links, imagery and documentation. Intended as a resource for art=
ists and encouraging those working in all media, from net.art, film and vid=
eo, eco-intervention and site-specific installation to more traditional for=
ms of agitprop, to use this site to search for raw material. The Bomb Proje=
ct has gathered together links to nuclear image archives (still and moving)=
, historical documents, current news, NGOs and activist organizations as we=
ll as government labs and arms treaties. It makes accessible the declassifi=
ed files and graphic documentation produced by the nuclear industry itself,=
providing a context for comparative study, analysis and creativity.

AirStream - John Blanchard: Taken from the album 'Airstream' by John Blanch=
ard, a selection of meditative pieces for cello, piano, sitar, and orchestr=
a. A smooth interface that reflects the feeling of the music, drawing the =
user into an environment that is unusually calming and relaxing for a compu=
ter interface. It also features photography created by the composer inspire=
d by the work of Andy Goldsworthy.

Short Films - Ruth Catlow: A selection of short films. 'Drawn to the big hu=
man subjects but ever unsure how to approach them. I think of these short f=
ilms like short films are like inappropriate gestures, physical actions or=
shouts in public spaces. They are about seeing shamanistic hedonism and an=
imism in shopping centres, the confusions and difficulties of taking respon=
sibility for the state of the world in a fractured community, shifting iden=
tity (finding myself behind someone else's eyes), subjectivity and perspect=
ive. I've got a wooden spoon in my hand and I'm stirring the chthonic soup'=
. All the clips are taken in public spaces shot in Walthamstow, the east en=
d of London, UK.

Marc Garrett's Writings - Marc Garrett: A varied collection of agitprop wri=
tings, featuring his infamous ironic email shorts 'Sleazy Art Meetings' (sl=
iced stories, art speak, critical philosophies, mixed with text stolen from=
sex sites on the Internet) and stories, or rather fables touching on how t=
echnology plays on our subconscience, issues of personal freedom, sexual id=
entity, masculinity and politics. Some have termed his stories as cyber-nov=
els. 'I don't mind the term, but I feel that the stories declare life and a=
ll its confusions beyond labels and are more about dealing with the issue o=
f transmutation. The site also features 'Critical Text' and 'Poetry/Prose',=
all worth a visit.

A Population in Peril - Cor[porat]e [Per]form[ance] Art[ists] Joseph Frankl=
yn McElroy & Donna McElroy: Performance has become a key term that in turn =
applies to experimental art, worker productivity, and functionality of tech=
nical, corporate, and military systems. A document of sunny New York days, =
digitalized and hand drawn depictions of creativity and contentment in the =
face of a terrorist threat.

Flash Poetry Generator 3.0 - Lewis LaCook: A programme that invites you to =
place nouns and verbs into dialogue boxes. Once the user has typed in their=
chosen words the poems are generated, forming evocative prose; some abstra=
ct, some profound, some dada. Lewis LaCook is also currently furtherfield's=
resident critic http://www.furtherfield.org/crit/index.htm.

Taxidermy - New Micki Tshcur: Animals that have fallen victim to road kill =
incidents undergo a taxidermic transformation into various odd poses & gest=
ures.
Goatboy - New Micki Tshcur: A sexual adventure turned into a comic strip by=
Micki Tschur documenting an encounter with a young goat herd in the Alps o=
f Italy.

Furtherfield wishes to thank all those who have submitted their new work an=
d for their patience in waiting for it to happen. [We still have more new s=
ubmissions to add to furtherfield, due to being over-run and over-worked we=
will put the rest up in a few weeks - Phew!]

How to Make a Dinosaur (Just add frog)

STEP 1)Find a piece of amber with a blood sucking insect from the dinosaur =
era trapped in it.

STEP 2)Extract the blood that the insect sucked from a dinosaur.

STEP 3)Use the dinosaur's genetic code (DNA) found in the blood cells as bl=
ueprints for another dinosaur. If pieces of the DNA are missing, fill in th=
e gaps with frog DNA.

STEP 4)Use these blue prints to create a dinosaur egg.

STEP 5)Hatch the dinosaur in an incubator.

STEP 6)Raise the dinosaur to full size.

STEP 7)Enjoy!

Personally I think it will be like watching paint dry...

Re:I have a theory =


Already my theory is being questioned.

I have it on good authority that Dinosaur hair was very short, due to the
intense humid conditions. Also most dinosaurs were reptilian - didn't you
see Jurassic Park?

So my theory all dinosaurs were thin at one end - fat in the middle - And
then thin at the other end. Still stands, unless proved otherwise.

I would also like to mention, while we are still on the subject that there
are many dinosaurs still alive, but are they friends of film stars. You
cannot see them on the screen because they hiding behind a car, or a
building on the set. Again, this is my theory and I am sticking to it.

Unless of course someone else proves otherwise...
